Houghton County Attempted Safecracking Trial

Jury deliberations have been underway this afternoon in the trial against a Dollar Bay man accused of trying to break into an ATM in Houghton County.

20-year-old Gordon Lewis is charged with attempted safecracking.

He also has a trial pending for attempted larceny in a building involving a separate incident.

The Houghton County Prosecutor says Lewis and 18–year–old Paden Rothenberger of Atlantic Mine tried to break into an ATM at the Miners State Bank in South Range last October.

Rothenberger was sentenced in March to one year in jail for his role in that incident.
